Polish Traders Demand Curbing of Licenses to Jews

Download PDF for this date

Progressive reduction in the number of trading licenses issued to Jews, until they do not exceed ten per cent of the total, was demanded by the Polish Traders’ Union today in a memorandum to the ministry of Trade.

Many Jews were beaten up and Jewish market stalls wrecked during excesses in the district of Szeranz. Several Polish workers were wounded when they came to the defense of the Jews.

The Court of Appeals has confirmed for the second time a sentence of one year in prison passed on Tadeusz Baranski, a Polish student, for the bombing of the Jewish newspaper Nasz Przeglad. Execution of the sentence, however, was postponed because of Baranski’s youth.
